No: 194, 3 July 2019, Press Release Regarding The Publication Of An Article By One Of The Terrorist Ringleaders In The Washington Post Newspaper

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 04.07.2019

One of the ringleaders of PKK which has brutally killed tens of thousands of innocent people and officially designated as a terrorist organization in many countries, including the USA, overtly engaged in terrorist propaganda by making use of the Washington Post. Through the said publication, one of the core commitments undertaken by the international community, namely the principle of the prevention of incitement to terror has heavily been violated. It is essential that no distinction should be made among the terrorist organisations.

The aforementioned stance has been capitalized on by PKK as a tool of terrorist propaganda and is in contravention of the sensitivity displayed regarding other terrorist organisations such as DAESH and Al Qaida. Hence, it constitutes a new and fatal example of hypocrisy in the fight against terrorism.
